FTTPoD price drop


[link to this post]
 
Just seen this link FTTPoD Price Drop

It claims that the wholesale price of the FTTP on demand product will be price dropped in line with the standard FTTP products.

This could be more appealing to the end users

Reported on TBB a couple of weeks ago. It has been discussed in a few threads on here I think when it first came out. Some detail still missing from exactly how it will work but certainly looks interesting.

Not really. It's not intended for a single end user and the installation charges will make most people's eyes bleed smile

It has the potential to be cheaper than the current system and there are a few people on here who had already upgraded under the current scheme with 3 year business contracts. The big benefit appears to be that if one person in a street upgrades then it becomes standard FTTP for everyone else.

The potential, but a lot hinges on the on demand build charge, which while it will be lower for some is going to be higher for others.

Also we have not seen the BT Wholesale pricing yet, it is possible they may add a premium beyond the usual backhaul costs.

The pricing structure will change, but the cost of ownership will remain the same.

That's how I read it too. I expect little change in the total cost, once worked out over 2 or 3 years.

The major advantage that I see is that it formally handles the case where multiple properties want to club together on a joint installation.
